OBJECTIVE: Maternal-fetal medicine physicians (MFMp) and neonatal-perinatal medicine physicians (NPMp) caring for premature infants and their families are exposed to significant risk for malpractice actions. Effective communication practices have been implicated to decrease litigious intentions but the extent of miscommunication as a cause of legal action is essentially unknown in this population. Analysis of communication-related allegations (CRAs) may help toward improving patient care and physician-patient relationships as well as decrease litigation risks...

Squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are common oronasal tumors in nonhuman primates. In this study, 11 cases of oronasal SCC in François' langurs ( Trachypithecus francoisi ) are described. Five initial cases were discovered on review of the North American François' langur studbook, with a potential familial pattern observed. The studbook was used to identify related individuals, and records were requested for review. Six additional cases were documented, and samples from all cases were submitted for microscopic review, as well as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), immunohistochemistry (IHC), and in situ hybridization (ISH), for generic papillomaviruses and PCR for herpesviruses because either virus may cause SCC in humans and other nonhuman primates...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether multiple detector computed tomography (MDCT) could detect troublesome aberrant posterior sectoral hepatic duct (PHD) communicating with cystic duct (CD). METHODS: The most troublesome bile duct anomaly during cholecystectomy is an aberrant PHD communicating with CD. It has been suggested that an unenhanced small duct between Rouviere's sulcus and CD on MDCT could be coincident to an aberrant PHD communicating with CD. A total of 224 patients who underwent laparotomy with complete lymph node dissection in the hepatoduodenal ligament for hepatobiliary or pancreatic tumor were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Reliable analgesia monitoring is not available for general anaesthesia cases. In 2003, we introduced a method to characterise arterial mechanical properties, which we termed arterial stiffness (K). However, it is unclear whether differences in K actually indicate changes in the intensity of a noxious stimulus. Thus, we examined the relationship between stress intensity and the value of K. METHODS: Thirty patients under general anaesthesia were randomly divided into two remifentanil concentration groups (2 and 6 ng/ml)...

Prevalence, clinicopathological features, and outcome of childhood idiopathic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (ISRNS) vary in different countries. We report on these parameters in a single center in Khartoum. We retrospectively reviewed all the records of children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) followed up in the pediatric renal unit, Soba Hospital, Khartoum between 2001 and 2012. ISRNS was defined as no remission within four weeks of daily prednisolone at a dose of 60 mg/m2. In 430 children with INS 130 (28%) had SRNS with a mean age of 7...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Anopheles stephensi is one of the most important urban malaria vectors in India and contribute about 12% of total malaria cases. An. stephensi has three ecological variants; type, intermediate and mysorensis that can be differentiated on the basis of differences in number of ridges on egg float and on the basis of spiracular indices. Because of its anthropophilic nature the 'type' form is an efficient malaria vector. In the present study, the egg surface morphometry and morphology of An...

Scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has reduced the incidence of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in South Africa. Despite the strong association of HIV infection with extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB), the effect of ART on the epidemiology of EPTB remains undocumented. We conducted a retrospective record review of patients initiated on treatment for EPTB in 2009 (ART coverage <5%) and 2013 (ART coverage 41%) at four public hospitals in rural Mopani District, South Africa...

BACKGROUND: Hypersensitivity reactions to Malassezia spp have been shown to occur in dogs with atopic dermatitis (AD) and to cause exacerbation of clinical signs. Improvement of clinical signs following use of antifungal medication is seen with both Malassezia overgrowth or Malassezia hypersensitivity (MHS). Subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) is considered a safe and effective treatment for management of canine AD. Adverse effects are considered rare. OBJECTIVES: To report on the use of SCIT with Malassezia extracts in mono-sensitized dogs...

It is well established that high ambient heat could cause congenital abnormalities resulting in miscarriage or stillbirth among certain species of mammals. However, this has not been systematically studied in real field settings among humans, despite the potential value of such knowledge for estimating the impact of global warming on the human species. This study sought to test the hypothesis that maternal heat exposure during pregnancy in hot regions is associated with increased prevalence of spontaneous abortions or stillbirths and to develop an analytical strategy to use existing data from maternal health surveys and existing data on historical heat levels at a geographic grid cell level...

Stem cells are the pluripotent cells that have the capacity to differentiate into other specialized cells. Recently, many experiments have been conducted to study the potentiality of stem cells in the tissue regeneration. We report two cases treated utilizing stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED) in the management of periapical lesions in permanent teeth. Two normal human deciduous teeth from children, 7‒8 years of age, were collected to isolate stem cells. Two patients, one with periapical pathology alone and the other with periapical lesion along with an open apex in young permanent teeth, were selected for the study...
